The Big Boo Cast, Episode 123

It took us three tries to get this episode going; we had a little recording trouble with the site we normally use, so then we had to switch over to Skype and blah blah blah we’re the Bad News Bears of podcasting. Hi, welcome to the podcast, now watch us get hit in the chest by a fly ball. Or maybe a microphone.

Eventually, though, we found us a work-around, and we settled in for a nice, long chat about all manner of things: the State / Bama game, Melanie’s recent trip to Marshall, Texas, upcoming speaking stuff, and an update on the Camellia boots. We also discuss the struggle of my current no-shopping resolution and a few things that have inspired the fire out of me lately.

And finally, we break down our friend Jamie Golden’s recent skincare product recommendations that she shared on Instagram. It’s safe to say that she shared what most would consider a wealth of knowledge, and we are grateful.

Enjoy, y’all!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 122

In this episode there is a very strange crackle-y noise that occurs randomly but consistently, and we have no idea what it is. I suggested to Melanie at one point that it was castanets, but clearly I was being sarcastic because as you all know we only play our castanets during the summer months.

I don’t even know what that means.

Anyway, if you can will yourself to hang in there during all the clicking / crackling, you’ll hear us talk about the Mississippi State / A&M game, one of my most confident parenting moments, and Melanie’s new beauty routine that involves cloth surgical tape. 

Y’all have no idea. It DELIGHTS me.

Hope you enjoy!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 121

On this episode we talk about college football – specifically, the Bulldogs’ misfortunes against LSU and the upcoming MSU / A&M match-up. We also discuss Harry and Meghan’s baby news – along with their Australia trip. 

Besides that? Oh, just a couple of new strategies from Melanie in terms of fighting her sleep lines, and some serious over-thinking / over-emoting from Sophie in terms of how fast time seems to move these days. 

As the kids would say, we get all up in our feelings. 

You know who else would say that? BRIAN CHALMERS.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 120

Well, if you have ever wanted to hear Melanie and me speculate about the source of a dog’s cough, this is the episode for you. We also talk about college football, the relentless heat of early October, and our inability to keep up with teenagers’ trends despite our best efforts.

Parenting. It is humbling.

Finally, we discuss the mystery of free radicals, and Melanie shares some exciting pajama leggings news.

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 119

There’s a point in every college football season (at least for Aggies and Bulldogs) when disappointment, at least for a few minutes, obscures hope. Melanie and I found ourselves re-acquainted with some disappointment this past weekend, which definitely wasn’t what we dreamed it would be. We break down all those feelings on this episode – along with continued analysis of targeting calls and the increasingly lose interpretation of roughing the passer.

We also talk about the realities of traveling out of town for a speaking engagement, the joys of high school football games, and our practices regarding one-star book reviews.

Also: books and fall fashion finds!

The Big Boo Cast, Episode 118

Since Melanie and I went to Chicago last weekend, this episode seemed like a great opportunity to recap our trip. We talk about our unforeseen hotel challenges, our night at Hamilton, and our many, many laughs at The Popcast Live. We also discuss college football at great length – and ponder the dynamics of sliding into someone’s social media comments with your team’s slogan.

Also, you will not be surprised to know that Melanie has a LOT of thoughts about Aggie football in general and Jimbo Fisher in particular.
